Nick Bostrom’s book Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies covers the subject in detail. The book became a New York Times best-seller and transformed the public discussion regarding the future of artificial intelligence (AI).

    The book, which came highly recommended by Bill Gates and Elon Musk, was influential in popularizing the phrase “superintelligence.” Speaker Nick Bostrom’s academic background includes computational neuroscience, theoretical physics, and the foundations of probability theory, in addition to philosophy and other subjects.

    Nick Bostrom Keynote Topics

    Everyone knows by now that Artificial Intelligence is the future and that it will transform the way we work and approach problems. Even with all its benefits, there are those who also firmly believe that AI also poses an existential risk to our species. Why? For starters, AI may not take into account aspects that are relevant to us when finding solutions to problems. Professor Nick Bostrom of the University of Oxford has been warning us for years to approach AI with caution and take active steps to mitigate the great risks it involves. He has influenced the likes of Elon Musk or Bill Gates with his work. In this talk, the bestselling author of Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies will talk about how are we using AI today and the enormous potential it has for our future, as well as explaining the big risks it poses and why we should take measures to mitigate them.

    In this talk, the philosopher and AI expert Nick Bostrom will explain what are the 4 ways by which we can avoid our self-destruction in the near future. With his deliberations on the future of technology and how it will affect humanity, Nick has inspired the thinking of celebrities such as Elon Musk or Bill Gates. These 4 ways to avoid our self-destruction are based on the research that Bostrom carries out at the Future of Humanity Institute that he founded and directs at the University of Oxford.

    Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds -- within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values -- or will they have values of their own?
